So Far this is AMAZING!!!!!!! I have personally enjoyed Teri Maxwell's books, and her website. Homeschoolign with a meek and quiet spirit, was a wonderful book.
info from titus2.com : written for parents of young children to teenagers, this book shares the joys and outcomes of our vital priority--keeping our children's hearts. Rebellion and immorality are common among teens even within the Christian community. Does Scripture offer any path of hope for more than this for our children? What can parents do to direct their children toward godliness rather than worldliness? When does this process begin? What is the cost?
Steve and Teri Maxwell believe the key factors in raising children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord (Ephesians 6:4) are whether or not the parents have their children's hearts and what they are doing with those hearts. Keeping Our Children's Hearts offers direction and encouragement on this critically important topic.
This book Rocks!!! I love how easy it is to read, it teaches the Why's of chores, and how to teach it to your children in such a great and powerful way....

Taken from amazon description: An immensely respected leader in today's homeschool movement, Dr. Ruth Beechick encourages families to center all aspects of their children's learning on God's Word in A Biblical Home Education.
Beechick begins by showing how the subjects of worldview, science, and history have been pulled apart from the Bible and how they can be sensibly reconnected. In the author's words, "Since the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, that anti-God teaching can lead only to foolishness."
Also included are chapters on thinking, reading, writing and study skills, learning methods, curriculum tips, and extensive teaching helps.
Unschooling isn't a technique - it's living and learning naturally, lovingly, and respectfully together.
